CAPS-UNMC offers a wide range of professional counseling and psychological services, including general problem-solving, individual psychotherapy, stress management training, couples/marital counseling, communication consultations, biofeedback training, and substance dependency screening.. These services are provided free-of-charge to all UNMC students and medical residents. Professional staff members are state licensed mental health providers. Medical referrals are available if needed.
CAPS staff makes confidentiality a high priority. With the exception of life-threatening situations (clear danger to self or others), no private information is released without the consent of the student. Counseling files cannot be accessed through UNMC or hospital information systems. And since there is no charge to students, there is no need to file insurance claims for services provided in our office.
